“Refurbished since last visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Was pleasantly surprised at how fresh the place looks since last visit.
Views are spectacular.
Food was fine. Rooms were clean and adequate. Staff were excellent.
Layout is good and bars very relaxing (drinks are expensive but no more than any other Lodges).
Enjoyed a dip in the pool - water was clean and refreshing.
I will go back here later in the year.

Only stayed briefly but really enjoyed it . Great views, good food, friendly atmosphere, cool pool. Watch out for orangatun coming off the roof to pinch your lunch, whilst unique and amusing , a bit scary

The place is very nicely located from the Voi Gate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and all have a view that is excellent overlooking the plains. The last time i was there, we had some car trouble on the way to the lodge. The person in charge called and i explained to him the issue and he informed the wardens at the gate who actually were at the gate until midnight waiting for us. A big thanks to them. The whole restaurant team was also waiting to serve us the 'very late dinner'. Although we got there late but it was worth it. The service was just excellent... I dont mind going there again and again... :)

We stayed here as a part of a package safari. For one night.Tsavo was great the lodge was not. Wouldn't stay again. Mosquito nets had big gaps. No air con. Food was questionable at best. We stayed in two lodges during our stay in Tsavo east neither we great and we both came away with an upset tummy.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has the best veiws

Stayed here in April 2013. Rooms are small and the air conditioning is very poor, couldnt sleep as it was mich too hot there was one small fan which gave out very little cool air. There are no balconies or opening windows either. Would not stay here again.

Terrible terrbile terrible
The only positive about this lodge is the view.
The rooms are terrible and the drinks are expensive!
The resaurant is so dark you cannot see what you are eating - probably a good thing. I had to leave my food and I am not a fussy eater.
If you can avoid do so and upgrade your safari

I have visited this lodge often on my way to tsavo but I have never had a chance to stay at this place , the view point at this lodge has a spectacular view and you can view a lush green scenery . This was the first lodge built in tsavo national park .

The best part is it is very near from Mombasa and very near also from voi gate . If you are in search of best photography in africa or considering or a film shoot this is a best place to be .

I have only made a day trip , tsavo was a best place in Africa but regret to say the govt has destroyed the flora and fauna of this park Completely .

Room Tip: Take a room on second floor on escarpment view .
